I am happy about this decision.

I think there will be a new user asking for this sooner or later. Why
not add some kind of faq (and even if it only contains one
question/answer), where it says, that a configuration file format is
not gonna happen unless someone writes a patch for it and posts it in
the appropiate section. The faq could also link to the wiki page
describing how to patch the configuration header file, Filippo is
going to write.
